don't feel left out, diver! You don't need 20 shots - two or three are enough, especially under water where the dynamic range is not as extreme. Set your camera on auto-bracketing mode. Target the slowest bracket to be where you would normally expose your single shot. On most popular cameras, that's -2 EV. No need for a tripod either. Using hugin's align_image_stack, hand held pictures are easily pre-aligned for the fusion process. http://panospace.wordpress.com/2008/02/07/take-enfuse-on-a-test-flight/ is the story of an amazing shot which needed alignment. The result is stunning!
